Are You Making Money and Making a Difference?

Money is neither good nor bad. It’s intangible. It doesn’t think. It doesn’t feel. It does nothing on its own. Making money is something the government does. They design it, they print it, they make it. We don’t make money, we earn it. We either earn it honestly or we earn it dishonestly. There are lots of ways to earn money honestly, and anyone can do it.

Cleaning toilets, mowing lawns, affiliate programs, teaching, painting houses, braiding hair, Google ads, washing cars, winning food design contests. These are all effective ways to earn money honestly. Some people earn lots of money doing these things, some earn people a little bit of money doing them.

It’s not the amount of money or the way it’s honestly earned that makes the difference. What makes the difference is what is done with the money after it’s earned.

Money is neither good nor bad. It’s intangible. It doesn’t think. It doesn’t feel. It does nothing on its own.

Question: What difference will you make with the money you earn today?
